I’m one of those people that adore 3/4 sleeve coats, they look awesome but are not built for frigid temperatures. The perfect solution to combat cold and transition your fall coats is the addition of the coat with corresponding arm warmers. When I saw this beautiful Italian wool fabric at Moodfabrics.com, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. This fabric is much more special in person, it has a drape which makes it perfect for this loose fitting coat. It’s tightly woven, irons well and sews perfectly.
I used this downloaded Burdastyle pattern Knee Length Coat 12/2010 #101 with the following alterations
-Removed 4" from the hem
-Converted pattern sleeve into 3/4 length
-Added leather and wool arm warmers-tutorial located on my blog http://www.beautejadore.com/2012/11/diy-leather-wool-arm-warmers.html
